Welcome back to Heart of a Hero, our recurring blog series where we take a closer look at some of our Kajabi Heroes and their awesome Kajabi businesses!
Today you’re going to hear from Emily Hawkins, a Career and Life coach from Atlanta who helps people find their voice and become leaders. You’ll hear how Emily went from having to do everything in her business manually (even taking orders over Paypal) to being able to go on vacation to Disney World during her latest launch!
Sophie (left), Dawn (center), and Yuki (right) all met in college during their time at USC. Little did they know that they would end up building a business together after college working with clients such as Fenty Beauty, ColourPop Cosmetics, Youtubers and Twitch streamers.
The start of something big.
Dawn was a freelance designer straight out of college when she started her own business. She began growing a following working with Youtubers on graphics for their Youtube channels and social media. As the demand for her services grew, she had to manage multiple aspects of the business that took away her time spent on designing where her job became more about administrative tasks and managing her clients.
Since Dawn’s strength is design, she knew she needed help managing the operations side of her business. Dawn decided to ask her friend, Sophie if she was interested in a job opportunity. During one of their post-college meetups, Dawn approached Sophie to help her manage the business side of her design business. At the time, Sophie was in a corporate career but it was lacking creativity and opportunities for growth. Dawn spoke to Sophie about everything that was required for the role, and Sophie made the decision to leave her corporate job.
“I really wasn’t happy in my job, and I didn't feel fulfilled."
As afraid as she was jumping into this startup opportunity, Sophie was also excited. “I really wasn’t happy in my job, and I didn't feel fulfilled, but ever since working with Dawn, the first week when I turned that corner, I was really looking forward to work. Something was wrong in my life, and I wasn’t in the right place. Now, I feel like I am in a place where I can really thrive.”
